"Unsecure Chtrbox AWS database exposes data on 49 million Instagram influencers, accounts"

An unsecured Chtrbox database hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and discovered by security researcher Anurag Sen has exposed the records of more than 49 million Instagram influencers.

@koyu How hard it is to check for the permissions before going live with a solution? well.. it seems more difficult than I imagined :)

@koyu Apart from the ridiculousness of people just hosting open databases for anything on AWS... is now every Instagram user automatically an "influencer"? Like, LOL!

@koyu what I like the most is the actual corporate damage control pop-up when you visit chatterbox's website

@koyu There's NO WAY there are 49 million Instagram influencers.

@Reinderdijkhuis i think what they mean is people having instagram influenza

@koyu @trickster Or is this like 'Tumblr teens', a collocation that persists well beyond its ability to accurately describe anything?
